The City Spotlights Teen Leadership Programs empower youth to become leaders in school, at home, and in their communities using their creative voices. The leadership, community, and career development training that these programs provide creates a foundation for Teen Leaders to grow into adults who will champion change, drive innovation, and ensure our community’s long term vitality.

In October 2019, we celebrated #ArtsMatterDay in Washington, DC, where our President & CEO Joe Spaulding and City Spotlights Teen Leadership alum Deniece Woodard gave presentations on our beloved City Spotlights Teen Leadership Programs at the National Council on the Arts Public Meeting.
